Fender have recently opened the Fender Visitor Center and have begun offering factory tours of their Corona, CA manufacturing facility. The Visitor Center features 8,000 square feet of exhibit space, featuring instruments, amps, photos, historical artifacts, and interactive displays.
If you’ve followed this site for any length of time, you know that I am a sucker for factory tours, so the ability to tour the Fender factory sounds very exciting to me. During the tour, you get to watch the Fender craftspeople actually make instruments and amps. You also get a glimpse into the Fender Custom Shop as part of the tour.
The Fender Visitor Center and Factory Tour sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon! Check out Fender’s video introducing the Visitor Center below:
